Just ahead of Women’s History Month, Chicagoland-native Sherlyn Dorsey – who now lives in Dallas – brought her message of empowerment to town for a one-day conference that boasted “You’re More Than Their Mother.” The human resources specialist took a dive into the entrepreneur side last year, establishing her foray into motivational speaking, and crisscrossed the South and Midwest with her message.

On Feb. 16 the former south suburban Harvey resident hosted the conference, featuring a moving spoken word presentation by Chicago’s K’Love and a panel of local career women who offered for inspiration and as testimonials their personal stories of economic and professional triumph. It was held at CISC Ralph Ellison school.

The conference sought to empower women to “move beyond everyone else’s expectation of why you ought to be and living the life of your dreams.”
